Usually I like staying up to date on this here blog. But this week, blogging just wasn't supposed to happen.
Here's the dealio.
It's been one of those weeks. One of those weeks where you feel like you just can't get anywhere or get anything done!
Let me preface this by saying we know we have much to rejoice and praise the Lord over. We generally don't like whining and complaining, but if we're being honest, we've both felt a bit more whiny this past week.
1) Jas has been dealing with (for nearly three weeks now) a persistent cyst on his lower back. I won't go into more detail (he'll appreciate that!), but it's been a literal pain in his, well, back. We've now made quite a few trips to the doctor and have been nursing it at home. Not to worry, we're confident it'll heal...but it hasn't been too pleasant and it's hindered him from doing normal activities that he enjoys. But I have a feeling it won't keep him down for much longer :)
2) I have been enjoying allergies. Let me rephrase that...I CAN'T STAND ALLERGIES. Ok, now that that's off my chest, let me proceed. Runny nose, sneezing constantly, itchy eyes, itchy mouth (seriously!), and itchy ears. Not fun. And to go with that I think I've given up all hope of getting rid of pregnancy nausea. I think I'm one of those women. You know the kind, the ones who are sick until birth day! Pleased to meet you, I'm Charity, and I'm an allergic, nauseas pregnant woman ;) I just keep telling myself it'll all be worth it when we get to see our sweet girl and that allergies will go away...eventually.
In addition this week we have done our fair share of studying Slovak. We've spent many an hour studying words and concepts and then quizzing each other. We like to make it fun in between sneezes and trips to the doctor!
So, all in all, we'll be happy to usher in a new week next week. Hopefully one with fewer doctor trips, fewer trips to the bathroom, and fewer tissues involved.
We'll let ya know how it goes ;)
